[QUOTE=Blue_Flamingo]My gyn. is putting me on ortho tri-cyclen lo (looking for a pill to ease heavy periods). She said it's fine if I take the packs back to back (skip the sugar pills) but I've heard from a lot of people here that trying to skip a period on a triphasic pill is really hard. Has anyone been able to do it? If not how long did you spot/bleed for? Thank you.[/QUOTE]

It is VERY difficult to skip periods with a pill like OTC. I've never met anyone who has successfully skipped a period on a triphasic pill. You may bleed for the entire length of the cycle, until you allow your body to have a regular period.
